    Absolutely the best pizza in Athens GA! Hot, crispy, delicious. We got the Hawaiian and a Caesar salad, both were delicious. The server was friendly, helpful and attentive. The vibe of the place is really good. The online reservation opportunity was very helpful since we were on a schedule to see a show later. The food came out in very good time. Just a great experience, so glad we have this option now in Athens.

    The food and atmosphere here is great. The service is consistently poor. We’ve given this place numerous opportunities to provide basic service but it’s clear they can’t keep staff and do not provide one bit of training to the new servers and other staff. Stick to takeout. Such a shame to waste a great location on such a poor experience as Emmy Squared.

    Food was just kinda ok. One pizza was delish - one was not Brussel salad had far too much dressing on it. Service was kinda inconsistent Friendly but no bussing of a pile of dirty dishes even when entrees was served. I had to ask for the heap to be removed. Wasn't offered water refills or our beers/cocktails. No follow up. We had to ask. Kind of like we were forgotten about. Place was not busy at all.

    We had been trying to get in so you need to make a reservation on a weekend night. Great pizza & salads and a good variety on the menu. We really enjoyed our meal & drinks. The only little negative is the night we were there it was pretty loud with a lot of college students there. The atmosphere is certainly energetic and we'll definitely go again!

    Great pizza - not so awesome outdoor seating (picnic tables that were positioned on an angle, no table lighting except street lights). Could be a better vibe but pizza is stellar.

    Very chaotic service. After a very long wait, the salad came out AFTER the pizza. Pizza was already lukewarm by the time it hit the table. Server never came back until the end, tho other staffers stepped in cheerfully when asked for help. Previous visit was much better.

    Disappointing, but at least they take reservations! This was our first time at Emmy Squared. I read before that their pizza was disappointing, but I was seduced by the pictures of deep dish Detroit-style pizza with carmelized cheese along the edge. I made a reservation and we were sat right away, which was great. The hosts were pleasant and helpful. Our server was pleasant, but we realized pretty quickly that while pleasant she wasn’t a great server. We ordered 2 drinks for our table - a Diet Coke and a Kick in the Falls cocktail. The DC showed up quickly, but 10 mins in and we still had no cocktail. A couple minutes later our server came back to confirm the drink order, so she forgot to put it in. The restaurant only had a couple inside tables and 5 outside tables when we arrived, but it took the food nearly 45 mins to come out. While fresh, it was disappointing with a serious lack of flavor on the pizza. It was clear they wanted to turn the table when she delivered the check while we were still eating. I have heard great things about their burgers, but not sure I will try them when a pizza place can’t even get their namesake right.

    The Big Ang was light on proteins. The pizza is Detroit style so is heavy on breaded crust. The Cesar salad has anchovies and is fishy tasting. The restaurant is very loud inside and thus challenging to have a conversation especially for voice disabled customers.

    This place is actual SO good!!! We got the brussel sprout salad and it was so different and good. We also got the Zia Fries and it was the best appetizer I have had in a while!! The vodka sauce pizza was the best pizza i’ve ever had and i’m not being dramatic. Get all three of these things they are all delicious and it’s SO much food we had lots of leftovers! 12/10 place going back once a week.

    We are vegan and built our own pizza. The three toppings were sparse. For example, there was only one tiny slice of green pepper and one tiny slice of onion on a piece of pizza. The mushrooms were more plentiful. They added a lot of vegan cheese, which was nice but it felt like we were eating a cheese and mushroom pizza. Other than the sparse toppings, the pizza was good. Najja, our wait person, was fabulous. Nice ambiance, it was quiet on the "bar" side.

    Blew us away…everything we ordered was so good. We had both the gluten free and regular pizza and I have to saw it was one of the best gluten free pizza I have ever had. Do yourself a favor, and for sure order the MVP! The Caesar salad was also excellent. Make sure and try this restaurant. It is one of the best in Athens!!

    The pizza is always great - love the crust. Service was less that what we normally experience as we had to remind our waitress after a half hour to check on our order. Also one of our party ordered a margarita on the rocks and was charged $2 for "Rocks" which was removed when I asked about it.

    Enjoyed the broccoli salad and shared it. Everyone liked their flavorful pizzas. Service was a bit spotty. Dining area on right side was empty except for our table. No one greeted me when I arrived. Server was very pleasant but didn’t check on our group very much.
